Seven year-old sucking on his ice cream.
As I mentioned, I’ve connected with spirit pens moving complaining twirling her curly copper hair.
I want to paint the circles I doodle I think
I could sell them to people who want
something to match their couch, olive green walls,
yellow white red black
reflections on the window
blue drinking jug with metric weights in white chair
toilet too close to class
can hear every move
the suction of water the tearing of paper
enchanted bliss breast transformed blue womb golden room
iridescent dragonfly wings
stars on the dome
the bus ride here to work the train
want my community to continue opening and growing
lights moving flying
I feel the color the apples
we are the deer
turkey shit grease grass snow stone
crush of mandible painful
want poems to be fun
why do i clam up in this room this space?
we all want to have fun
annoying man — shut up! what did you come here for?
community is a new tremulous wobbly place
the ground moves and is unsteady
dry mouth fogged mind
teeth clicking not
so tense wish you would stop being tense wish you could stop being so tense hear an organ crank somewhere above
disgusting snap of fingernails bitten
